Dazzling! :D

More like “freaky”, but I am confident they will catch fish. :D

Electric and eclectic. I'm certainly not an experienced steelhead fisherman, but I'll bet this pattern would draw their attention. Great creation, Ray.

Looks like is would be good for a drowned spinner if dressed on a light wire hook, nice stuff!

Hi Ray, It looks like it came right out of the greatest show on earth!

Lots of potential to draw strikes in this high and cold water we are experiencing this spring.

Best,

Tim

Ray,
I wish I could crow like a carnival barker from "The Greatest Show on Earth". All I can muster is Fantastic Job as Always Friend! The Offray Ribbon seems to be multi-colored along it's length and that has a really cool effect on each and every pattern that you show! These are definite fish getters with their shiny exteriors! I like them a lot!

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.
